Three Dimensional images of Yosemite available

The California State Library is making 3D images available to the public. OK, these are not the whizzy kind that modern devices produce.

These are similar to the old 2-picture hand held viewers that they used in the 1800’s. The 2 photos are side by side and taken a tad off to the right/left. When viewed by each eye , they had depth.

These photos being converted and each side are tinted to create a unique image. Use the red/green plastic glasses to see them in 3D. Just like the sci-fi movies of the 50’s. Some theaters actually use this passive technique to show modern movies.

I can’t stand it since it reduces the color on the screen. I can see the movie better with my naked eyes. Available 3D olde tyme pix of Yosemite and other neat scenes can be found at the CA State Library, in Sacramento.

Unrelated thought worth quoting:Now it’s been ten thousand years, man has cried a billion tears. For what, he never knew, now man’s reign is through. But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight. So very far away, maybe it’s only yesterday.”In the year 2525,  Zager And Evans
